David Youngs 15:00 - 17:30

David Youngs is a multi-instrumentalist based in Cambridge, UK. In recent years he has focused intensely on the acoustic guitar, developing a percussive, finger-style approach to produce instrumental works often featuring unusual yet accessible time signatures and scales.

With a vast range of musical interests and techniques drawn from over three decades of self-taught musicianship, it’s hard to pigeonhole David’s music with great precision. As R2 Magazine commented “Trying to define Youngs’ sound is a fruitless activity, I’m reminded of Michael Hedges’ tongue-in-cheek shots at self-categorisation, most particularly ‘new edge’: his compositions are plumped full of depth and atmosphere, but you sure as hell aren’t going to use them to soundtrack meditation.”
